Jim Morrison Was Here
Due to the ‘Shots Fired’ report from earlier this afternoon, at 1:06 p.m. today, Monday, 10/17/2016, George Washington Middle School and Central Office were placed on a lock-in. The lock-in was lifted at 1:45 p.m. Jefferson-Houston School was also briefly on lock-in but was given the all-clear a few minutes later.

A lock-in takes place if a threat is identified outside the school. All school doors are locked, but classes continue as normal. No entry into or exit from the school will be allowed.
